Being a desert region, agriculture could not have been a sustainable occupation in Rajasthan. So when kingdoms started settling here, the common folk had to come up with alternative options to sustain their livelihoods. Moreover, life here at times became a little dull. So the people here liked to spice up their lives by wearing embroidered mojdis, colourful ghagras, lacquered bangles and silver jewellery. These two factors combined together led to the rise of Rajasthani artisans and made it a popular trading hub.

Through this walk, we will explore the many Bazaars of Jodhpur. Not just to shop but also to interact with some incredible craftsmen and listen to their stories.
